I'm guessing it probably is fake as videos that spread like this end up getting a source pretty soon or a tutorial on how to do it yourself Tongue

Might actually see something soon though

Basically the ability to create/port applications to maximize the Zune's potential. For example, using the WiFi to stream internet radio, browse the internet. As for audio playback, more equalizer settings, visualizers, etc. The possibilities are endless, but we have to find a way to get Linux on the darned thing first. (And of course we'd have to find some skillful coders to create what I used as examples)

If you told me in 2001 that Apple and Microsoft where gonna be number 1 and 2 in this market by 2007, I probably would have called you crazy.

The person who made that has a really bad video camera.  It looks like they recorded it on their cell phone.
Definitely a fake.
